In 1983 Junjo Lawes formed the Sound System Volcano that came to be one of the legendary dance hall sounds in Jamaica. Resident deejays where Buro, Shadowman, Toyan, El Fego Barker. The selector was Danny Dread.


Volcano also was also the name of Junjos label on which he released his own productions. The label was based in Myrie Avenue, Kingston 11. Cocoa Tea, Frankie Paul, Yellowman and many other artists have released on Volcano.


In the early 80's Tero Kaski and Pekka Vuorinnen visited Jamaica to write a book about Junjo and the deejays of the sound. This was published in 1984 as »Reggae Inna Dance Hall Style« (Black Star).
